The City's Only Bridal Shop To Close

One woman's disappointment brings joy to others. 

Heavenly Gowns, a longtime bridal shop in East Saint John, is having a closing out sale.

Owner Sheri Israel tells CHSJ News there are many reasons why she is closing the doors on her Thorne Avenue shop.

She says it's a number of things they haven't been able to overcome such as a poor economy and poor business decisions adding now is the time to close so no brides are left without a dress.

She adds her suppliers are working with her to make sure brides that already ordered dresses get them.

Israel tells us the store will remain open through the end of September possibly into October.
